Question about Xerox WorkCentre XD120F Laser Printer

1 Answer

I have an old Xerox XD155df printer that needed a new drum. Tried 2 different ones, but the error status code "J2" continues and the red "drum replacement" indicator stays lit. Tried turning the printer off and on already. Any other suggestions?

Press these keys in sequence and rather quickly like within 4 seconds.
"C" Clear, then the far left button which is the exposure mode button, then C again then the far left key again.
So in short form: C,far left, C, far left
If done properly the display should go blank.
Now key in 24 as if you were making 24 copies.
Now press the print button.
Now key in 7 as if you were making 7 copies.
Press Print again.
You should now have flashing 000 in the display.
Press C several times to exit the mode and your drum light should be gone.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Im presuming that your have replaced the drum??

if so :
Remove the new drum.
On the front of that drum, there is a green cover. Take it off and what has happened is the flag on the gear had dropped in shipping.
You will see a flag like piece of plastic on one of the gears, reset it to up and somewhat to the right.
Then put the green cover back on
That flag has to be in the up position when new. It passes down and actuates a drum reset switch on the machine.
When that is back in the up position. re insert the drum and on the first revolution it will turn on the switch.

Xerox WorkCentre XD155DF front panel error code "L 6" What does that mean and what is te repair? It occurs during power on and will not continue to power up after the code is encountered.

Hello there breinhart.

Here's your geek-steer ...

Per manufacturer's support page, your device "Xerox WorkCentre XD155DF" is no longer made or sold by Xerox, therefore I'm presuming it's maybe getting a little long in the tooth.

Unable to locate error code "L 6"/"L6" for this device. However, per the "XD Series" user's guide, errors L1 thru L5 provides suggested solution of what's quoted following. Logic dictates L6 would have been paired up right alongside if not for this being an earlier published parent document to your later ...155DF suffix'd device.


Switch OFF the Main Power.
Wait approximately 5 seconds.
Switch ON the Main Power.
If the status code continues, call for service.


... which in tech parlance is an age-old, fundamental-as-they-come procedure known as a "reset/reinitialization". Which actually, right up to present day, is a surprisingly often successful remedy.


If I were you, I'd first try a quick reset/reinitialization as guide instructs. If/when that doesn't remedy, start from scratch:
  1. Check for/download latest driver(s) from support website
  2. Uninstall device's software.
  3. Turn off device.
  4. Unplug device.
  5. Wait 10 minutes.
  6. Disconnect all remaining cables/cords (both ends).
  7. Inspect for damage/wear and clean each cables' end fittings.
  8. Reconnect all cables/cords.
  9. Reboot.
  10. Perform a registry cleanup.
  11. Reinstall device using latest version software/driver(s), carefully following manufacturer's installation checklist.
That's just about as anal-retentive and thorough a reset as you can accomplish. Many would think it's too anal, but not me. I've discovered over a long period of time, from long-ago up to this very day ... printer type devices are THE most persnickety of them all. They're the house-cat of the PC/IT world ... vay'we, vay'we scay'we!

If still problem-ed, I'm sorry to say there's nothing much else I can offer as a solution, other than what the manufacturer's guidance is: "call for service".

Good luck to you, and please post back ...

Drum Cartridge XE Series P8 part number 13R553 Printer code J2

With "J2" flashing, press:
1. "CLEAR" button
2. "AUTO" button, then again
3. "CLEAR" button
4. "AUTO" button

Do it fairly quickly. If it's done quickly enough the display goes off. When it does:
5. enter "2" and "4" (see "24" on display)
6. Press "START/COPY"
7. Press "7"
8. Press "START/COPY"

If display doesn't go off repeat steps 1 to 4 but faster, until display is off.

J1 Error, Changed a brand new factory-sealed toner, still getting J1 Error

Make sure you have the right code: J1 or J2.
one is for the drum and the other is for the ink.
Make sure the toner unit is for this model and not for a different model.
If the old modual is still available, check the connectors at the back and see if they are the same.
If anything else Call Xerox for repair. If the cartridge was bought through Xerox have your reciete available for warrenty.
If repairs still need to be made, A Xerox service call may be needed in order to fully repair the copier and warrenty the cartridge.
